The legendary actor made this recording in 1903. Joseph Jefferson was known around the world for this portrayal of which he created. Although this was not Jefferson's first venture into recording, it was a far more successful one than what he had recorded for the Berliner Graphaphone Company in the 1890's.
Digital recording from a Columbia Graphaphone disc made at Menlo Park.

Joseph Jefferson My Great Great Great Grandfather
This man was a good man. He performed on stage all over America in a time when actors were not respected. He was born into a family of actors. He had great love and compassion for people. He was not only a great actor but a remarkable painter. I am his great, great, great granddaughter. I am most likely a watered down version of him. I love HUMOR and art. He loved both. I too have been involved in stage production and I am currently an Artist. I sculpt. I can't draw or paint a straight line. Ugggh! That's just one of the reasons that I admire Joseph Jefferson so much. He was a remarkable painter and a refined human being.

He doesn't Yabba Dabba Doo for one thing..
Actor here performing scenes from a play that I never knew existed, based on the all too familar fairy tale. You sort of know the story by know, and this is not badly done, but it sure won't beat the parody that the Flinstones cartoon series did a while back.
